Adult tutoring: My unique speciality is offering private tuition to adults wanting to buy a house in France including situational tutoring e.g. visiting Estate Agents (who don't speak English most of the time!), and going through the burocratic process, which my-self went through, of signing contracts, getting finances, chasing vanishing builders... (see my favorite websites for property search and price trends).


From Caryn and Andrew who are now running a hotel in Nîmes:"We have been studying with Eddy in Nottingham for around 3 years, usually with a weekly lesson lasting for an hour and a half, where Eddy teaches two of us together. Eddy strikes an excellent balance between planning lesson subjects for us and allowing us to be self directed. He also uses a good mixture of study methods including free conversation; role plays, reading and the use of TV and video. Eddy is a native french speaker and is highly knowledgeable about the French language and always happy and able to explain any questions on grammar or usage. He is also interested in and knowledgeable about a wide range of subjects including art, wine and food, politics, French history, business and current affairs, (but not football!) all of which he combines very effectively to bring his lessons and the French language to life. "French Teaching for all" est vivement recommandé?!" Andrew H.

From Dave & Josie C., who bought a house in France: "We would like to say how very helpful Eddy is, he tailors for your every needs and is very patient with his teaching methods, thanks Eddy for everything we will keep in touch, Dave and Josie"

Exams tutoring: This is another of my great strength, boosting confidence and unlocking the potencial of students preparing exams (GCSE, A levels, Degree, Master, PHD, Business French F.D.A., D.E.L.F. and preparation to T.E.F. prior to emigrate to Canada).

From New College Nottingham: "Thank you for your tutoring with N.C.N. and for the excellent way that lessons have been conducted. I have had marvellous feedback relating to the standards of teaching and also to the friendly and professional way that it is conducted. Well done! Zoe H."

From Alex, who is doing A levels in Nottingham:
"My Amazing GCSE Result: Before I came to Eddy, at the beginning of my GCSE course, my parents and my French teacher shared serious concerns about my French and how I would do. Having been initially predicted a D grade, and possibly a C grade, I went to Eddy for help. We discussed possibly being able to achieve a B grade. However when I came out of my French Oral it was 'near perfect' (my french teacher said) and on results day I successfully achieved an A grade, and was a couple of percent of and A*. This result was beyond everyone's expectations and I have him to thank for it: he will unlock your potential" Alex A

From David, who will be doing a PHD in Law at Edindburgh University: "Merci pour étant un enseignant super. J'ai appris plus cette année que j'ai appris en cinq années d'école. David B."
